Child Poverty in Perspective: An overview of child well-being in rich countries

Innocenti Report Card 7, UNICEF

This report looked at how well children and teens fare in various countries. Data was collected for 15-year-olds from 25 countries, including Canada. The report analyzes six dimensions: material well-being, health and safety, education, family and peer relationships, behaviours and risks, and sense of being loved, valued, and included in families and societies into which they were born. When looking at the best measure of family relationships, UNICEF used the marker “percentage of students whose parents eat their main meal with them around a table several times a week.”
